Dropdowns Causing Rhino to Crash

Hello, I seem to have a strange bug that causes certain dropdowns to cause Rhino to instantly crash. I’ve looked around a bit and can’t seem to find anyone with the same issue, so perhaps it’s my computer.

I first noticed the issue when trying to place text. The dialog comes up, and when I try to click the font dropdown Rhino crashes. I have since found the same issue with: ‘Text’, ‘Text Object’ and ‘Insert’. All of these occur when a dialog box is open, and relates to things outside of Rhino, such as files and fonts.

Other dropdowns, like the projection in viewport panel or the style dropdown in the loft command have no issues. Anyone know what the issue might be?

Can you run SystemInfo in Rhino and post the results here?

Thank you for your quick reply

I guess I would start by updating your Intel driver and maybe even your Nvidia driver as well - even though it’s not all that old… Otherwise, it seems to look OK…

Thanks, is it worth me sending the error reports when it crashes?

This error has been going on a while, I doubt it has anything to do with the Nvidia driver, though it could be the Intel driver I guess.

Definitely. Every time.

Ok will do!
